Hi both, sounds like a lovely day at Tekapo, like you we think it is missing the x factor as far as a community, it has the scenery but the town maybe is spoilt by the busy highway cutting through and the shops are all in rows instead of clusters and groups I dont go with straight lines. Did you see the historic telescope in the new building near the lake and the poshest YHA in NZ !! What a pozzy for the Mt John cafe indeed ,hope you didn't car ride up there!! Hope your weather holds, you have been blessed! Sheila n Dave ?? I

Hi there, Yes we did see the old telescope and the YHA! Pretty amazing. I thought they might have used the telescope for night sky watching but at present it's just for show. Yes, we drove up Mt John! We usually walk but not this time. I think we've stayed there umpteen times over the years and never thought I'd get sick of it, but there are in fact other lovelier, less designed places like Lakes Ohau, Manapouri, Benmore and other smaller ones. Last day here today so we'll check out the new part of the A2O on foot. More later on that. Disey

Dave and I thought of you today as we biked to Wakefield and sat in the reserve with succulent steak pie and crisp flaky pastry.....mmmm. A beaut spring day. We're enjoying your trip, thanks ?

Oh for a nice kiwi pie. Hope you really enjoyed it. Here, it's meat, lots of potatoes, dumplings, some veges, and endless salads all the same. We did discover an excellent sushi bar though. We'd leave the G's for dead when it comes to cooking. Glad you're enjoying the blogs. Disey and linds

It sounds like you had a really lovely day. I would be interested to hear how Tracey and Brendan enjoyed their day in Italy and what Tracey thought of Milan, it is one of the fashion capitals of the world and has a most impressive train station - the artwork on the walls could rival any art gallery.

I love the family photo with the posy of wildflowers, it is really lovely.

What a lovely start to Brendan and Tracey's Swiss summer family holiday! Will you all be tempted to get into the lake of Lucerne for a swim while you are there? :)

What a beautiful cycle trail you are doing. I got excited after seeing the first sunflowers out yesterday on my way to Germany meaning that it is officially time for a new onslaught of sunflower photos to be taken! Are you cycling with a group? Or have you made your own itinerary?
